New Indian Restaurant on Coney Island Avenue

Just ordered food from Raj Dabar Restaurant on Grubhub.com and it was great! Had the Tomato Basil Shorba Soup (it also has curry and cilantro in it). I could have eaton a gallon of it! Also had some special Naan with minced meat in it and Lamb Vindaloo (very nicely spiced). I will be ordering again from here soon. What a treat!

    Great find, thanks. We ate there the other night. The space is actually pretty nice, with tablecloths, real napkins, music in the background but not loud, and friendly service.

    We started with the aloo tikki-potato in mint/tamarind sauce-this was just a terrific dish.

    The mutter mushroom with peas had a nice smokey-tomato sauce with mushrooms.

    The seafood kurma with shrimp was especially nice - a generous number of shrimp in a creamy almond sauce. All served with a bowl of basmati rice.
    The rosemary nan was pretty good, infused with the rosemary taste.

    There are a number of items on the menu that I'm looking forward to trying. Here's hoping they make it.

    Here's a link with some of the menu-

      I'm looking forward to trying all the things you just mentioned. By the way, I love their rice. Most restaurants just toss you some white rice. Their basmati rice is beautifully flavored. For the first time ever, I ate it all. You really must try the Tomato Basil Shorba Soup. Great flavor!

      I just tried this restaurant with my sister. We shared the Darbgar special dinner for two. I had the chicken Dansak curry and she had Lamb kurma. Both were very good. We really enjoyed our desserts-Rasmali and Gulab Jamon. I would recommend this restaurant and will be back to try different dishes
